Queenstown’s first dedicated tequila and mezcal-inspired cocktail bar, Little Mez, has opened its doors offering over 80 tequilas and mezcals direct from Mexico.

Situated below its Mexican-inspired sister restaurant Margo’s, Little Mez will feature a range of liquors exclusively, with bottle prices ranging from $60 to $850 or even bespoke bottles up to $3,000.

“Some are the only ones in New Zealand, which means when it’s gone, it’s gone,” says co-owner James Ace.

“Most of them though, if you can find them you’ll only find them in one or two other venues in the country. Little Mez is Queenstown’s first dedicated Agaveria introducing you to tequila or mezcal-based cocktails, top shelf agave-based spirits, organic wines, and Mexican beers. If margaritas aren’t your thing, visitors can settle in at the bar and sip neat from a locally hand-made clay cup. The team’s also been working hard on delivering a delicious non-alcoholic cocktail menu!”

A ‘Trust Little Mez’ option will also be available, enabling bartenders to create a unique flavour profile to suit individual tastes. For those who would like a bite or two to go with their drinks then Mexican-inspired plates from Executive Chef Matt Tobin will also be available.
